A Norwalk man has been indicted by a Huron County grand jury, accused of a pair of felonies.
Ryan J. Justice, 32, of 33 N. Hester St., this week pleaded not guilty in Huron County Common Pleas Court to one count each of burglary and tampering with evidence. Both felonies are in connection with an April 28 incident.
“Mr. Justice fled from officers after the home invasion. … The homeowner was home,” Huron County Assistant Prosecutor Richard Woodruff said.
Longo told the court Justice knew he was wanted on a fines-related warrant and “ducked behind a truck when he saw a cruiser.”
Justice, whose $50,000 bond includes a 10-percent provision, is prohibited from being on the victim’s North Pleasant Street property. The defendant told the judge he is about $1,100 behind in child support and has been in jail since mid-January.
He has a July 23 trial scheduled.
